scary forest! aaaah! run away!

just thought i'd show you what that scary forest looked like...more specifically this is elastic cartilage from the epiglottis stained with a silver stain to make all the elastic fibers show up black. you can see that it's "contained" within some somewhat horizontal lines on the top and bottom...that's called the "perichondrium". see? scary forest!

and with that, i shall continue on studying for biochemistry and histology tests that are tomorrow. studying for biochem really is pulling teeth. we're learning about membrane proteins which are as thrilling as licking a million stamps. histology, on the other hand, i have come to enjoy, and i hope that i do decently on the test. can't mess up my standing too early in the game now, ya know...
